Can You Dig It?

.

Shoveling snow is like gardening … sometimes a  bumper crops up.

.

note: I’m glad you have a new laptop Tony.

Things I’ve Seen With My Own 2 Eyes # 9:

snow-blindness: … I think you can see that.

Waiting

.

When I wait for a line of cars to go by before I can pull out on to the road

… the last one always seems the slowest.

.

note: when I’m waiting for something bad … it usually happens right away.

double note: people who fly first class experience waitlessness.

Things I’ve Seen With My Own Two Eyes #6: someone pulling out a ketchup bottle from their coat at a fancy restaurant.

Out With The Older, In With The Newer

 

.

Goodbye 20 year old old van.
Hello 10 year old new van.

Hello power steering, airbags, CD player, automatic windows, automatic door locks, and much improved gas mileage.

I can’t wait to see what incredible improvements are in  the brand new vans!
I’ll find out in another 10 years, I guess.

… maybe they can fly!!!

.

note:the best things in life are free” … like my old van.
I hope the new one will be “the second best things in life” … even though
there’s only one of it … I’m hoping it’s at least twice as good!

what I’m listening to now #52: Crowded HouseWeather With You“.

The Future

.

As a kid I almost never thought about the future.

Now that I’m older, I think about the future all the time:

… I always buy toilet paper, refill the ice cube trays, and never run out of gas.

.

note: people who don’t invest in the future should probably invest now … or before now.

double note: an assist on this post to Mr. Pettit … for making me think beyond the ice cube trays.

.

what I’m listening to now #43: nothing good.

Bigfoot Still Lives!

.

I almost hit Bigfoot with my van

… it was a near myth.

.

note: Bigfoot might have been Sasquashed.

double note: I didn’t draw the picture … I just kind of put it together: it’s a collage about collision … it’s a collasion … or something like that.

.

what I’m listening to now #42: 38 Special‘s “Caught Up In You“.

Bunches

.

I’d rather be in a gang than a posse.

… a gangster sounds so much better than a poser.

.

note: I wouldn’t want to be in “The Gang Green” though.

double note: I always feel more comfortable being chased than doing the chasing: being it sucks.

triple note: these motorbikes did some criminal banking, but nothing too illegal.

.

what I’m listening to now #37: Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt.

First Mate

.

I receive souvenirs from students once in a while; this is one of them:

a pirate made from a coconut husk.

I wasn’t sure what to do with it at first, but I finally decided to hang it from the mirror in my van.

It’s pretty cool; I kid you not.

I call him Aaarrrchie!

.

note: since I’ve had this I’ve started spelling my name Aaarrr O S S … the bank staff don’t like it very much.

Get Into Ition

 

“Self perception” is really “self deception” a lot of the time.

 

note: I don’t have a self image … I have a self imagination.

double note: photo credit goes to Mr. Pettit  on this one. Well spotted.

Today #363

I walked around all day with my mouth wide shut.

Training … But In A Car

 

Snowplow Driving Courses must be seasonal.

 

note: tractor driving courses must be a new field.

double note: wouldn’t a highspeed car chase on a driving course be cool?
… 2 drivers to kill too!

.

Today #322

I almost backed into a car while pulling out of a parking space today. I almost rear-ended them … at least from my point of view.

A Short Attention Span With A Zoom Lens

 

Some times things just come together unintentionally.

Other times people just do weird stuff for some reason.

 

note: I didn’t really know what this was until I uploaded the photo. It was just a hunch that it would be weird.

double note: Mr. Pettit  seems to think I take about 50% of these photos from my van. He’s a bit on the low side possibly.
When I  drive, I’m attracted to stuff like a crow to shiny things.

Today #312

I won a handmade hula skirt and floral hairpin yesterday at the big hula dance Christmas party I was invited to. After much consideration, today I decided to give them to one of my students’ mother who is a hula dancer.
(being the only guy in a crowd of 180 hula dancers, I was really hoping that my ticket number wasn’t going to be called.)
